What did Luka Modrić say to Salah after the Champions League final?
Last month, when Liverpool lost the Champions League final, Mohamed Salah struck a pitiful figure in Paris.
Jurgen Klopp’s team was defeated 1-0 by Real Madrid at Stade de France, guaranteeing a dismal conclusion to the season for the Reds, who had lost out on the Premier League championship by a point only a week earlier.
Liverpool’s defeat in the Champions League final was especially upsetting considering they dominated the competition.
Salah and his colleagues were eventually defeated by a second-half goal from Rodrygo.
In an interview with the Podpah podcast on YouTube, the Brazil international disclosed some words of encouragement he got from Luka Modric after the game during a guard of honor.
He said: “After the [Champions League] final ended we did the corridor for the Liverpool players. Salah was passing, a bit sad, and Modrić said ‘next time you try again.”
